Three Weeks Ago
The month of many travels started with a trip to Boise. Nothing too exciting to report from that outing, although I did get to fulfill the dream of getting sunburned at work during a particularly glorious afternoon spent working outside.
Two Weeks Ago
The traveling continued with a return trip to Boise the following week. The approach to the airport in a tiny commuter airplane was made with 49 mile per hour winds; it was not dull.
Once back to LA, Ma and Pa came down to see the new house. After they had driven six hours to get here I immediately put them back in a car and then spent forty-five minutes fighting traffic into downtown, but it was well worth it for a ridiculous dinner at WP24 – there was definitely more than one “wow” uttered during the meal. The next day was the day of many birds – Pa was impressed by the backyard feeders, Ma enjoyed the waterfowl during a walk around the Marina, and Pa and I tied on rabbit spotting 1-1 while looking at flying things at the Ballona wetlands.

The consultants I work with at Bodybuilding.com are all contracted through Commerce Architects, but since we work remotely and rotate weeks onsite in Boise I’d only met one of the other guys in person. Last week we all got together to work from the Berkeley office for the week, and I managed not to do anything worthy of firing despite the fact that they had to spend two hours confined on a sailboat with me during a team outing.
On Thursday night Audrey flew into the Bay for a long weekend trip, but since it’s late in June and I made it a goal to write three entries a month, that summary will follow in another post.
